Historic motorsport show returns to NAEC Stoneleigh

Race Retro, a historic motorsport show, will be returning to NAEC Stoneleigh for its 2020 event.

The event, now in its 18th year, is expected to attract around 25,000 visitors over three days, and is backed by Reis Motorsport as its headline sponsor.

Guests will be able to place bids at the Silverstone Auctions, visit the Trader Village and Autojumble, listen to speakers on the Reis Live Stage, watch live rally action and demonstrations in kart racing and much more.

Show director Lee Masters said: “The Live Rally Stage on Saturday and Sunday is something you simply won’t be able to see anywhere else. There will be more than 120 rally cars in action with the chance to walk around the parc ferméand meet the drivers, plus there’s even the opportunity to enjoy a ride as a passenger.

“As well as this, we also have the Hall of Fame, showcasing fantastic racing and rallying cars of yesteryear, not to mention 250 specialist traders and the Reis Pride of Paddock competition for race cars that are participating in grassroots motorsport.

“NAEC Stoneleigh is always our first choice for hosting this event. The flexibility of the venue in helping us provide an abundance of live, outdoor rally action, as well as so much inside space, is a key factor.”

Account director from NAEC Stoneleigh, Lynn Gardner, said: “We are always delighted to welcome back Race Retro.

“We are perfect for this type of automotive event and it’s an area that we are seeing big growth in, with a 32 per cent increase in consumer exhibitions last year.

“Events such as Race Retro, The Great British Land Rover Show, Car Chase Heroes and Gravity Show are choosing us because we are unique in our indoor/outdoor infrastructure with a private road network that can be used as a rally course or for karting sessions.

“Added to this our central location and excellent road and transport links, visitors can get here easily, as is proven in the high numbers that visit this event each year.”

Race Retro will take place from 21-23 February at the NAEC Stoneleigh.
